Not all clinics have breath-hold radiotherapy available for left-breast irradiation. However intensity-modulated radiotherapy (IMRT) has also been advocated as a means of lowering heart doses. There is currently no large-scale, long-term follow-up data after breast IMRT and, since dose distributions may differ from classic tangent-based radiotherapy, caution is needed to avoid unexpected worsening of the late toxicity profile. We compared four IMRT techniques for free-breathing left-breast… CONTINUE READING
